About the Course

How can we create agile micro aerial vehicles that are able to operate autonomously in cluttered indoor and outdoor environments? You will gain an introduction to the mechanics of flight and the design of quadrotor flying robots and will be able to develop dynamic models, derive controllers, and synthesize planners for operating in three dimensional environments. You will be exposed to the challenges of using noisy sensors for localization and maneuvering in complex, three-dimensional environments. Finally, you will gain insights through seeing real world examples of the possible applications and challenges for the rapidly-growing drone industry. Mathematical prerequisites: Students taking this course are expected to have some familiarity with linear algebra, single variable calculus, and differential equations. Programming prerequisites: Some experience programming with MATLAB or Octave is recommended (we will use MATLAB in this course.) MATLAB will require the use of a 64-bit computer....

The course is very good.\n\nThe classes are well taught and show general concepts. It is necessary to do research on the internet, to solve the assignments. This is not a bad thing in my point of view

I think this is very good course of aerial robotics research. Being a student of robotics, I feel that some of stuffs in this course needs a good background in control and mechanical engineering.

This is a very nice class about the aerial robotics. If the more background materials about the quadrotor are provied in the class content, the class will be better.

Very interesting course. Lectures were very informative however

some test questions, especially in first quiz, where not covered directly

in course materials.

A good overview on various fields of Robotics, especially control. Quizzes seemed a little ambiguous but lectures and assignments were very informative!

TAs should have been more available/active in discussions (especially given the scale of the last assignment), otherwise enjoyable/challenging course

Overall the information provided in the class was very valuable and up to date in describing the kinematics and dynamical control for a Quadrotor.

Excellent course.. would have been more better if we had more Assignments (hands on) for Non-Linear control, Control of Multiple Robots (swarms)

Very interesting! I really recommend. I don't agree with people who says it's only PD tunning. It entails comprehensions of physics and control.

A little mode like a demo video to integrate all the systems and make the video could help as a supplementary material to work on their own.

Good course! Would be better if it can provide more detailed explanation about the learning materials and give more interactive practice.

this course needs more insight into how programming of robots like drones.Otherwise best course for leaning concepts of aerial robotics.

Es un poco pesado el curso. Es mucha información (muy compleja) para un solo curso.

Por demás es excelente, exigente y muy enriquecedor.

Pretty decent introduction to robotics. I had some issues with the matlab code and files but was eventually able to do the assignments.

Really testing course. Get's pretty tricky, especially the final assignment.

The staff is really helpful and the content is top-notch.

There were minor errors in the quizzes but I loved the course, would be nice to use some open source tool besides matlab.

Best regards.

Great course in general. But after submission, student should be able to see the solutions of the problems and programming solutions.

Mathematical supplements should be richer and for programming assignments , better guidance and explanations are needed I believe.

informative but proper sources are not provided by these people...many times you feel like you are getting incomplete information

Very helpful but brief course. Would have loved if they have provided additional material on UAV design process and mathematics.

It was a great course; however, sometimes the lectures are not enough to understand some of the concepts that are being tested.

Lots of material compared to the time. But great course!! Feels awesome after completing the quadrotor controller projects.

Aprendí bastante sobre como se programa y cómo funciona un dron con este curso. Requiere ciertos conocimientos de mathlab.

The course is theoretically great but i think it needs some more focus on the coding of path plannes taught theoretically.

O curso é muito bom. Aconselho a ter mais atividade de programação que preparem o aluno para a atividade final da semana.
